The Five Stages of A Haircut

The Five Stages of A Haircut

There's nothing you can do now because your hair is long gone.

Cutting your hair is an exciting and sometimes scary adventure. You almost always have a style in mind and the hairdresser almost always finds a way to mess it up. There are stages to getting your hair cut and everyone knows it. Below are the five stages of a haircut.

1. Deciding to Cut Your Hair

You've made the decision to cut your hair and you couldn't be more excited. The appointment is set and you're finally going to trim those edges! You might even decide to do something drastic and cut half of your hair on one side and buzz the other. I speak from experience.

2. Uncertainty

You're sitting in the waiting area flipping through five year old hair magazines, wondering if you should really go through with this. Should you cut all of your hair off? Is today really the day to get a hair cut? All self doubt come crashing in on you at this point.

3. You Love It

The stylist has worked her magic and now you sit in the squeaky salon chair staring at your reflection with a smile on your face. It's exactly what you wanted and you couldn't be happier with your trimmed ends or completely new look.

4. Buyer's Remorse

You've had your new look for a few weeks, maybe even months now. It's come to the point where you don't know if you should have cut your hair in the first place. You look in the mirror and you hate what you see. There's nothing you can do now because your hair is long gone.

5. Time to Cut It Again

Your buyer's remorse is really getting to you now. There's only one thing that you can do at this point, and that is to cut your hair again. At this point, the stages have come full circle and it's time to get a haircut.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
